NFL Week 3 Recap
Browns 21 Jets 17
The Browns hadn’t won a game since Christmas Eve, 2016. That’s over 600 days. And all it took was one half from the #1 overall pick to change that.
Baker finished with over 200 passing yards, and he also got some big help from running back Carlos Hyde who punched in two goal line touchdowns and almost had 100 rushing yards. Hyde also happened to have a kid that night too, so that’s pretty cool.

Baker was named the starter on Monday by head coach Hue Jackson, and now the Browns have a chance to start a winning streak when they travel to Oakland this Sunday. The Browns might actually be good, and it’s a pretty weird feeling.
Saints 43 Falcons 37
Points on points on points. Just as expected. Matty Ice kept his Falcons in the game by tossing 5 touchdowns, three of which were to rookie Calvin Ridley.

In crunch time though, Drew Vick showed up out of nowhere, used an electric spin move, and tied the game up for his Saints.

Brees then went over the top in OT for the W. He also set an NFL record during the game, so I guess that’s pretty cool too.

Chiefs 38 49ers 27
Patrick Mahomes continued his run to the MVP Award by tossing another 3 touchdowns and 314 yards. The big story from this game though is the injury to 49ers Franchise QB Jimmy Garoppolo, who tore his ACL and will be out for the rest of the year.

The 49ers now have to turn to CJ Beathard, so their season is basically over.
Dolphins 28 Raiders 20
Miami is now 3-0, and Oakland is now 0-3. I feel that seat getting warm…..
Bills 27 Vikings 6
You know Josh Allen is REALLY feeling himself when he decides to hurdle Anthony Barr 😂pic.twitter.com/86JW9YtF1g

Cousins turned the ball over like crazy, and the Bills shocked the entire world by pulling off the biggest upset in 23 years. Crazy shit.
Redskins 31 Packers 17
Clay Matthews got another roughing the passer call, and the Packers didn’t win for the second week in a row.
For the third straight week, Clay Matthews is charged with a roughing the passer penalty.
Do you agree with this call? pic.twitter.com/xX10iP3w9A

Panthers 31 Bengals 21
The Bengals lost. I’m not going to talk about it. We’ll be fine. However, I want John Ross’ head.

Bears 16 Cardinals 14
Josh Rosen made his debut for the Arizona Cardinals…..aaaaaaaand….they lost.
you know what? Josh Rosen does remind me of Aaron Rodgers. when he throws an interception he looks just like him pic.twitter.com/oXPWvJKgjE

I guess Steve Wilks saw enough from Josh Rosen in that one drive despite the interception, and he’s decided to name him the starter. Good luck, kid. We’re all praying for your health.
Lions 26 Patriots 10
The Patriots look like absolute dogshit. They couldn’t move the ball, they couldn’t stop Stafford, they allowed Kerryon Johnson to run for over 100 yards, and it looked like they were basically moving in slow motion. Brady completed 14 of his 26 pass attempts, and only had 133 yards to go with a touchdown and an interception. The good news for the Patriots? Josh Gordon is almost ready to play, and Julian Edelman is almost back from his suspension. Patriots fans should be worried since they have been absolutely murdered back-to-back weeks, but after they get all of their weapons on offense they should be fine.
Steelers 30 Buccaneers 27
- Is Fitzmagic Over? 2. Are the Steelers good?
I hope not to both. Big Ben was out there throwing the ball around, and he actually looked like he knew what he was doing. Fitzpatrick had another solid game, throwing for over 300 yards and 3 touchdowns. His downfall? Three interceptions.
If Fitzpatrick would’ve just taken care of the ball, then the Bucs undoubtedly win this game. Unfortunately, he didn’t, and now we have to hear the Steelers fans talk about how they think they’re actually good.
The Bucs take on Chicago next week, so if Fitzpatrick can put up some serious numbers against Khalil Mack and the Bears defense, then he needs to be the starter for the rest of the year while Jameis sits on the bench with a clipboard. That simple.
